Old School BMX get togethers are becoming more and more common place every year. As the original guys who got on BMX bikes approach, gasp!, middle age they look back at what they did for fun as kids and what stands out like crazy? All those rad (yea rad, it’s old school but timeless, LOL) […]
Aren’t you a little old for that kid’s bike? Yea, I’ve personally heard that question plenty of times in my years in BMX and if some of the people who asked me that were in Philadephia PA on June 23rd they would have gotten a pretty crazy answer. Helllllll nooooooo! Greg Provost once again went out […]
Ya know it’s funny. I was looking at all these zines over the past couple weeks and kept asking myself, “I remember there being something special about this one”…even though it looks the same as all the others. Zeroxed, etc. Then it dawned on me. This was the first zine I had seen that was […]
More old school BMX freestyle history. This time, the SJ zine, Anarchic Motion. More NJ legends in here than you can shake a high pressure RL Edge tire at.
Here’s another classic, this time from the South Jersey Crew. Names like Welding, Hough, Crowthers are all in here…even some mention of some half ass ramp park called Ramp-Ateria..crazy times.
8 Daze. Issue 2. More great stuff. Amazing to think this is going on 25 years old. NJ, we don’t die, we multiply.
Yea, we made more than on issue of this thing. Myself, Adam Stack, Scott Mineo, and a bunch of other crazies. We were way ahead of our time with “color” covers, LOL. Read, laugh, enjoy BMX…
This zine was one of the best of its era. BMX was really taking a down turn at this point in time. The 80’s were ending, the AFA was waning and the underground scene was exploding. Whiplash would spawn many great riders like John Nicholson and one of the greatest overall riders to come out […]
Racing has come a long way baby…rider counts at locals are down, there is only 1 sanction, there is now BMX Supercross, Fiber Frames…but some things never change, Redline is still around and so is BMX racing in NJ. Here’s a few shots of a time when there was an indoor track in NJ that […]
Back in the days before the ‘net, riders kept up on each other’s scenes by xeroxing small magazines called ‘zines. You’d go to contests and everyone and their brother had some literature they were hawking for a buck or just giving away to tell people about what they were up to. NJ was no different. […]
